ANTM‘s latest episode had the model hopefuls traveling to Seoul, South Korea, where KPop group BtoB acted as the judging panel for a group dance photo shoot.
Despite acing that challenge, Raelia’s photos for the MCM luxury goods shoot landed her in the bottom three. She was ultimately sent home, leaving behind a devastated Will. So, is she rooting for Will to take out the title now? And how does she feel about all of the other contestants? Raelia’s addressing all of that and more.
SheKnows: What surprised you most while watching this week’s episode?
Raelia Lewis: The thing that surprised me the most about watching this episode is how much everyone struggled during the shoot. We all were tired and a little confused.
SK: How were things in the house before you left?
RL: Things were great before I left the house. We were all really excited to be in Seoul.
SK: What’s one thing viewers didn’t see that happened behind the scenes that you’ll never forget or that you wished they had aired on the show?
RL: One thing viewers didn’t get to see is that it was actually my birthday! We got to celebrate and we danced and had so much fun!
SK: Are you surprised you got eliminated? What would you have done differently?
RL: I was very surprised I got eliminated! I really believed in myself! I wouldn’t do anything differently because I gave it my all. If that wasn’t enough, I can respect that.
SK: Who on the show will you continue to keep in touch with and why?
RL: My castmates are like my extended family. We bonded so much during that tough experience. I keep in touch with almost all of them! They’re some of my favorite people.
SK: Who do you predict will win? Who do you want to win?
RL: I’m Team Will all the way! I’m so proud of them all! They’re all great and I wouldn’t choose a better group of people to lose to.
